Tawney, James W.
The paper describes a 6-year project to develop curriculum, instructional technology, and computer generated instruction for severely developmentally retarded children (1 to 21 years old). Sections focus on curriculum content (which includes 100 instructional programs in such areas as self help skills), curriculum structure, the integrated learning system, instructional model, and field validation. A view of the educational environments for severely impaired children in the year 2000 is presented, encompassing the concepts of efficient and futuristic uses of computer technology in homes and in schools.
